I don't usually make a New Year's Resolution.

Well, unless you count when I resolve to lose weight each year.

But doesn't everyone do that?


Many of my good, good friends have been so forward thinking in their 2010 plans.

Choosing words to live by....

Making resolutions...

And really if you think about it, they're making commitments to themselves.

People like Lindsay and Jenny and Kristi.


I've been inspired.

This year, I've made resolutions.

But I haven't forgotten my old standby - "I'm going to lose weight this year!"

Hey, at least this year I have a shiny "carrot" in front of me to motive me. My goal is to get closer to the weight I was in college - ahh, those were the days - see?

I've also tried to pick a word for 2010 - and let me tell you, it wasn't an easy task!

What challenge did I want to put out there for myself?

And what if I made it to hard - can you make it too hard?

So after debating with this - I've chosen to be committed.

Committed to the goals below, the family and friends I love and cherish so much, and the dreams Clint and I have for our future.

In 2010, I'm committed to:

* Living life fully - and being thankful for all I've been given.

* Eating healthier and exercising more often.

* Like Jenny, I want to start going back to church on a regular basis.

* Being a better friend - giving more, putting more effort into my friendships and getting back in touch with good friends, like the ones above.

* I want to be more calculated in my decision making - but balancing that with my normal spontaneity.

*I'm going to try and make it to all of our Bunko nights this year!

*And finally, I'm going to consciously make an effort to only make 50% of the decisions regarding our wedding....and give up control to allow Clint to make the other 50%. After all, it's our wedding - not mine only.

Welcome 2010 - I'm glad you're here!


  1. Two things:
    1. Weight Watchers online! It rocks--got me back to my college weight.

    2. Don't worry about giving him 50% of the choices in your wedding. 90% of men care about 1%. And that 1% is just making sure there's enough beer! :-)

    Happy new year--this will be a busy year for you!

  2. Well maybe we can meet up, to go to church! With Lindsay! Happy New Year to you! And at least the easy choices you can let Clint help with! Like the cake, the menu, and what the men will wear. That's a good place to start;)

  3. I Love this post! And, I know you are going to live that word well this year! You are such a sweet, beautiful girl...I'm so glad I've been blessed with the opportunity to meet you :D May this year be filled with Wonderful, FUN, commitments! Sweet blessings!

  4. I'm also trying to be a healthier me in the New Year. Why is weight so easy to but on but so hard to get off????

    Not speaking as The Golden Child's sister but as someone who's planned a wedding do involve him make it both of your wedding. Plus don't get so involved in the details you stress out and miss the enjoyment.

    I also need to get back to church. I was going a lot with Aunt J and to her church and now I'm not.

    Great post and I'm blessed you've chosen my brother to be committed to. :)

  5. Love you Darc!! Praying that this year holds many, many blessings for you!

    You are an inspiration & are one of the most committed friends I have - Thank you!!
